Everyone changes there mind. Sometimes things happen to coax those changes and that is why I am here today.
When I was diagnosed with SVT which meant a "procedure" on my heart, it provided some incentive to reflect on my jobs, outside interests, people pleasing and other such time suckers.
It was an easy decision for me, now armed with an impending surgery, to decide which of my extra curricular duties to dismiss.
My new focus will be to keep my current position that affords me much-needed benefits while grooming my side hustle - The Root Sellers.
Yes, I have always been an artist and a gardener and about three years ago discovered farmers markets. What a pleasant alternative to traveling all over the country doing art shows. And, I did that and it was painful to give up that lifestyle, but my children needed me. Twenty years ago I made a decision to get a "real" job and get my son and daughter out of school and off in the big world.
Then, I would go back to weaving. Well, as we all know that didn't happen.
I have had time to think since the beginning of November about what could happen on January 10. No one seemed to think anything of the procedure but me. So, I made a decision to focus on my business and my job and let go of all the other stresses in my life. Here I am.
From this website, I will do my baking, selling, gardening, selling, weaving, selling and teaching. It appears I have skills that are now making a comeback. I wish I had prepared for that second coming and took more notes.
It will come back to me and then I will pass it on to you.

Writing, or maybe talking, comes naturally to me and under the guidance of a great newspaper editor I have acquired skills that led me to author four books.
